German Air Traffic Control During The Cold War: The Story of Rhein Control - The Operation of ATC in Southgermany's Upper Airspace 1957-1977

May 25, 2019

This book contains a historical facts report and commentary on the development of the German Air Traffic Control Centre RHEIN CONTROL as formerly operated by the United States Air Force in Europe (USAFE) and the former German Federal Administration for Air Navigation Services (BFS), assisted by the German Air Force (GAF) at Birkenfeld-Nahe and Frankfurt/Main in Germany. RHEIN CONTROL was and still is an upper airspace air traffic control (ATC) centre, formerly responsible for South Germany only, but now also covering all of former East Germany (Berlin UIR).

This report is written by a former air traffic controller and air traffic control expert, who meanwhile actively spent 50 years in the ATC profession worldwide, and has had first served 25 years with the German Federal Administration for Air Navigation Services (Bundesanstalt für Flugsicherung) in upper airspace area control operations, ATC planning and experimentation.

The Development of Air Navigation in West Germany after 1945: The first ten years - when nobody knew Air Traffic Control (ATC) existed

May 24, 2019

This documentation about the development of air navigation in West Germany after 1945 explains the continuation in the further development of the establishment of military tactical air navigation services units beginning under the military governments of the victorious powers and the succeeding allied occupation forces in Germany. This transportation service of the first decade after the end of the war constitutes the cradle of modern european air traffic control (ATC) as the major part of the overall air navigation services system.

It closes with the partial reconstitution of air sovereignty in West Germany (FRG) in 1955 and the end of the supervision on the re-established german federal air navigation system administration (BFS) by the Allied Civil Aviation Board - CAB of HICOM by mid 1956. This book is available in two print versions: On the one hand, a documentation in colour printing is available, which is primarily aimed at the specialist public. On the other hand, there is a printing variant with the same content, which has been produced in grayscale.
